Date: September 21, 2014 6:07:29 AM CEST
Josef Kleber submitted an update to the getmap package. Version number: 1.7 License type: lppl Summary description: Download OpenStreetMap maps for use in documents. Announcement text:
The goal of this package is the simplest possible provision of map images (OpenStreetMap, Google Maps and Google Street View are supported). In the simplest case, the specification of an address is sufficient. The package loads the map using the \write18 feature, which you must activate to use this package. The image will be downloaded by an external Lua script. You can use this script also from the command line. License: LPPL Changes in v1.7: - added kml2epl and kml2gps modes to getmapdl.lua Google's *new* version of 'My Maps' allows the definition of markers, routes and arbitrary lines on different layers and export of all of these into kml files. getmapdl -m kml2epl -K file.kml will parse the file and output the geographical coordinates of defined places and the routes and lines as encoded polylines - added multi track support for gpx2epl and gpx2gps modes; revised gps2epl mode - updated documentation

getmap – Download OpenStreetMap maps for use in documents

The package provides a simple interface to OpenStreetMap, and to Google Maps “map images”. In the simplest case, it is sufficient to specify the address you need (if you don’t, the package will use its own default).

The package loads the map image using an external lua script (invoked via \write 18: must be running with \write 18 enabled).

The (“external”) lua script may be used from the command line; a bash version is provided.
